It is with excitement and unlimited joy that we welcome you with open arms of love to Open Heavens Junior Church, a place where dreams are nurtured and biblical teaching is done in an exciting manner. Every individual in our care is unique and highly esteemed. You can be rest assured that every child will be treated equally and empowered spiritually.
This arm of the church consists of the younger and newer generation of the ministry. They are the definite leaders of tomorrow. The bible clearly advises us in proverbs 22:6 to train up a child in the way he will grow and when he grows up he will not depart from it.
It is an extremely vibrant ministry divided Into 5 groups:
- Gift 2-5 years old
- Joy 5-8 years old
- Path 8 –11 years old
- Stand 12–15 years old
- Connection 16 years onwards
This indeed is the very aim of the junior church to try and catch the children as young as possible, working in partnership with our lovely parents, to enrich their lives with the word of God.
Every class participates in active learning through Drama, Music, Debates, Quizzes, Movies and short clips to mention a few.
Meet our Teachers
The teachers are very passionate about teaching the children at the church. They love making a great impact on the kids lives by helping them have a relationship with Christ at a early stage in life.
HOD’S are always well supported and sent on the latest specialist training courses; building confidence, developing creative minds and establishing an awareness of the latest legislation in children and young people in the junior church.
One of our main objectives is to establish programmes and facilitate discussion forums that provide platforms, where both children and the needs of young people can be expressed and addressed. These programmes are designed to encourage young people to enhance responsibility and take positive action on issues affecting their lives.
Issues such as:
- Healthy Eating and Eating Disorders
- Fitness and Nutrition
- Drugs and Alcohol
- Bullying and Peer pressure
- Counselling and Relationships
- Anger Management and Crime
- Careers and Mentoring
The key objective of these programmes is to develop good Christian values and attitudes in our junior church, simultaneously given them the tools and confidence required to seamlessly integrate into society.
